In the next few days, you will be scrabbling around in the loft and dusting off your ancient Christmas ornaments.
However, if you fancy upgrading the decade old decorations, don’t get your wellies and waterproofs out just yet. Why don’t you DIY some new accessories instead of buying them? You can do it by yourself, as an activity for the kids or gather some friends and have a DIYing party. Below are some links to get your creative juices flowing.
